Revolutionary Blockchain Partnership Announced By Microsoft, Goldman Sachs

Blockchain technology is the focus of a new partnership between Microsoft Corp, Goldman Sachs Group, Cboe Global Markets and Deloitte.

Its main objective is to develop a blockchain infrastructure that can connect institutional applications and encourage wider adoption of distributed ledger technology in financial markets.

According to a May 9 press release, the Canton Network will be an interoperable blockchain with privacy features designed for the institutional asset management industry. This will make it possible to synchronize different financial markets that were “previously isolated”.

Bloomberg calls the new venture “a collaborative effort that could be crucial for accounting technology in the financial market.” Additionally, the group is striving to integrate “applications from disparate institutions,” which could have a positive impact across the industry.
